Gill Brigg is the National Drama’s Additional Needs Officer.
I have over 40 years’ experience as a cross-phase drama teacher, theatre-maker, and advisory teacher. Armed with an M.Ed and a PhD, I have worked for the last 20 years in Specialist Schools as a TIE performer, drama specialist, and class teacher. I now work nationally and internationally with teachers, actors, and academics, developing their practice with neurodivergent groups. Collaborating with theatre-makers to make pieces accessible to audiences with complex needs, I also serve on boards and advisory groups to represent the cultural rights of children and young people with limited access to theatre and drama.
